ICA Classics have already released four CDs of the great Russian conductor Evgeny Svetlanov in Russian music comprising Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov and Shostakovich. He was also a masterly conductor of non Russian composers of the late romantic era including Bruckner, Elgar, Mahler as well as Brahms and Debussy, two composers he performed quite regularly throughout his career. This gripping 1975 concert with the LSO is recorded in brilliant stereo and has never been available before. The bonus consists of Dame Janet Baker’s wonderful singing of the final song from Chausson’s Poeme de l’amour et de la mer; ‘La Mort de l’amour – Le Temps des lilas’. It derives from the same concert and was previously issued on BBC Legends.
